About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Convertible bed, Sleeps 12

Get away from it all on Henry's Island offering alluring privacy and breathtaking views on the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy the 5 acre Bay-front home whose private sandy beach includes unique Northern Neck sand dunes. Swim, crab, fish or use provided canoe, kayak, or paddle board to explore the water. Relax on lounge chairs with a frosty drink (margarita machine included). Take in the Bay breeze while reading a book or sleeping on the beach. The open floor plan and 9 ft. ceilings provide a spectacular view to watch bald eagles, osprey and heron without leaving the beautifully furnished house. Dine inside overlooking the Bay or eat outside on the patio set after using the gas grill. Three king bedrooms (including two master suites), a bunk room and a separate play room make it comfortable and fun for adults and kids alike.

Something for Everyone: Tour one of historic Northern Neck's 19 museums, golf several excellent courses just minutes away including the award-winning King Carter Club (Golf Digest's 2006 best affordable public course in America) or sip Virginia's finest wines on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail. Sail, shop or dine in award-winning restaurants nearby. An easy drive to historic Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA.

About Diane Boyle

We love the relaxed atmosphere of being right on the Chesapeake Bay where going to beach doesn't require leaving the property.

Diane Boyle purchased this house in 2009

Why Diane Boyle chose Windmill Point

Just a short distance from DC, this private location provides a soft sandy beach to relax. However relaxing doesn't mean boring. The historic Northern Neck of Virginia has award winning golf, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, history (birthplace of three US presidents), art, antiques, and vineyards.

What makes this house unique

The private beach and endless Bay views makes it perfect for relaxing and playing.

Peaceful and Picturesque Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable home is the perfect place to restore your soul with the quiet natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay. It offers all the modern conveniences with expansive views of the water reflecting the brilliance of sunrises and soft glow of pinks and blues on the horizon as daylight begins to fade. Treat your family to some time to relax and reconnect!

Our New Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay in White Stone. People look for different things in a rental so what appeals to us may not be everyone else's cup of tea. So if you like quiet, seclusion, small towns, waterfront setting, private beach and beautiful home with 2 master suites then this is what you are looking for. The owner Diane is quick to respond to questions and you cannot ask for anyone more accommodating. Thank-you for sharing such a nice home Diane.

Like your own private island!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 had plenty of room. The kayak, paddle board and canoe were perfect for the beautiful shallow waters of Chesapeake Bay! There is a house next door but we still felt like we had our own private island! Sandy beach and warm, calm waters are perfect for young children. Lots of beach toys and beach towels available. Kitchen has many great amenities but could use some new larger fry pans. We cooked many great meals and the Weber gas grill was a plus! Make sure you hit the grocery store beforehand as it's quite a drive back into town! The Northern Neck area has cool shops, art galleries and lots of historical sites! We checked out The Steamship Era Museum and George Washington's birthplace!

Diane was great to work with! We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Glad your group had a good time. We look forward to having you back and enjoying new larger frying pans. Thanks for the tip. We try to keep on top of the amenities throughout the year and do a major refresh at the end of each season. We'll make sure large frying pans are on the list.

Great location for getting away from the hustle ansnbustle

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful home, very comfortable and plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and relax. Loved the location as it is 7 miles from the small town of White Stone. Cell service is not good at the house but that was almost a blessing! Enjoyed the beach to ourselves. You need to keep on top of your food bundled up as the ants will come out in full force but as long as you keep things sealed up and cleaned up they were under control. the weather was perfect while we were there in late July, occasional rain late afternoon in a few days but mostly hot and sunny. Had an issue with the air conditioning but contacted the owner and she had a repairman out first thing in the morning and had it fixed no problem. My family consisted of my husband and myself and our 5 adult children and a few of their friends. Not one complaint all week....... we would definitely return!

Owner's Response: The cell service does stink regardless of your carrier! The wifi and free use of the land line typically will keep folks adequately connected. I'm sorry the A/C went screwy during your stay, but am glad we were able to get it fixed quickly. We look forward to having you visit again.

Great views of the bay!

  • 5 of 5

The views were fantastic and the house was very roomy and clean. The weather was less than desirable but the house provided enough space to allow everyone to enjoy themselves regardless. Overall a success and we'd definitely return.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the house and I'm so sorry the weather wasn't great. We continually try to improve the experiences of our guests so you'll find the house as good if not better next trip.

Beautiful home and beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Beautiful weather, beach and home!! Blessed with perfect 90 degree weather. Home had everything we needed to enjoy our time there. A little paint and new screens on the doors but not a deterrent from our stay just an observation.

Owner's Response: Thanks. We rely on our guests to point out needed improvements and attempt to have them addressed quickly. We'll get new screens on the doors. The cleaning crew doesn't always notice as our little visitors tend to poke their fingers or toys thru the screen leaving holes below eye level.
